LAS VEGAS, NV [NBAA 2011] – October 9, 2011 – Aircell, a leading provider of in-flight connectivity for business aviation, announces that its flagship communications system, Aircell Axxess®, has been selected by Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation as standard equipment aboard its new, ultra-large-cabin, ultra-long-range G650 business jet.

Aircell Axxess is a cabin communications system that provides global voice service and narrowband data capabilities via the Iridium Satellite network. Integrated cabin handsets allow passengers and crew to easily place and receive voice calls to or from anywhere in the world.

“The Gulfstream G650 is a very technologically-advanced aircraft and Aircell Axxess’ global communications capabilities will play an important role in the passenger experience as well as with ongoing aircraft operation,” said John Wade, Aircell’s executive vice president and general manager. “Since Aircell Axxess is also offered on several other Gulfstream aircraft, fleet commonality will help passengers feel right at home as they communicate with family, friends and colleagues as they fly.”

A very popular cabin communications system throughout the business aviation industry, Aircell Axxess is currently offered on dozens of individual factory aircraft from Gulfstream Aerospace, Bombardier Aerospace, Cessna Aircraft Company, Dassault Falcon Jet, Hawker Beechcraft Corporation and others.
